ABOUT THE AUTHOR
MIKE SEIGEL
Mike Seigel has had a distinguished academic and teaching career. After being educated at St Paul’s School, he won an Exhibition to New College, Oxford, to read Classics. After rejoining St Paul’s School in 1973 as a teacher, Mike became Head of Classics at Colet Court (St Paul’s Prep School) in 1976 until 1987, dur ing which period more than 80 of his pupils succeeded in getting scholarships to the most prestigious independent schools in the UK, including Eton, St Paul’s, Winchester and Westminster. He then concentrated his teaching to the GCSE and A Level classes and was also a Careers and University Adviser at the school with special responsibility for those going abroad for their higher education (mainly to US universities), before becoming Headmaster of Rokeby, Kingston upon Thames, in August 1999. He served as Head for eight years, during which time he oversaw many developments of the school and became actively involved with the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools, serving on several educational committees. He has now returned to the classroom for the next stage of his career and is teaching Latin and Greek at all levels at Tiffin Boys’ School, Kingston.
Mike Seigel is married with two ‘young adult’ children.

FOREWORD
The study of Latin provides a firm foundation for the learning of other languages both ancient and modern, as well as promoting greater clarity of expression in the pupil’s own language. I am convinced that such a foundation is as important today as it has ever been and I commend this new book warmly both to teachers and to pupils. Mr Seigel’s aim is to expound and illustrate all the basic Latin construc tions. His explanations are clear and concise, and make the book a valuable vade mecum, as well as an excellent source of material, for those pupils who already have some two years of Latin behind them and who want to secure their grasp of syntax, extend their vocabulary and improve their translation skills.
